Scripture Reading Titus 3:4-8 - "When the kindness and generous love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the bath of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he richly poured out on us through Jesus Christ our Savior, so we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life."
Scripture Reading Psalm 118:1-4 - "Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, for his loving kindness is everlasting! Let Israel say, 'His loving kindness is everlasting!' Let the House of Aaron say, 'His loving kindness is everlasting!' Let those who fear the Lord say, 'His loving kindness is everlasting!'"
Word of Knowledge/Prophecy/Vision - The Lord reminded me of a book by Merlin Carrothers. In that book, Prison to Praise, as he was praising, he had a vision of people going up this ladder to the heights of heaven. When he became fearful, the people started falling down because he had stopped praising. The Lord then said, "I am not giving you a spirit of fear but a spirit of love, power and a sound mind." We have to continue praising and to pray against the fear. The Lord said to me very strongly, "If my people only knew the power of my blood, if they only knew the power of my blood, in the blood that was shared on the cross." I asked him, "What do you mean?" And then I saw us praying over every one that we love, our children, our grandchildren, our sisters, and on and on, and pleading the blood of Jesus over them every single morning.
Prophecy - "The Lord inhabits the praises of his people."
Confirmation of the power of the blood of Jesus - I saw for a long time this red, it was like a covering. It looks so majestic and almost like a velvet. With that a real strong sense of God's power and grace and strength with us. I heard the words, "Come near to me."
Prophecy - "I am the Lord that healeth thee."
Scripture Reading Romans 11:36 - "For all things were created by him and all things exist through him and for him. To God be the glory forever! Amen.
Scripture Reading Psalm 147:1-3, Hymn to the Almighty - "Praise Yahweh - it is good to sing in honour of our God - sweet is his praise. Yahweh, Restorer of Jerusalem! He brought back Israel's exiles, healing their broken hearts, and binding up their wounds."
Scripture Reading Psalm 25:4-5 - "Make me to know thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth and teach me, because thou art the God of my salvation; on thee I wait all the day long."
Prophecy - I call you my friends, my people, because you are always eager to hear my voice and I love you."
Scripture Reading Rev 7:9-12 - "After this I looked and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every region, from all tribes, and people and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white with palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice, saying: 'Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb.' And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshipped God, saying: 'Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!'"
Scripture Reading Psalm 49:1-6 - "Hear this, all nations! Pay attention, all who live on earth, important people, ordinary people, rich and poor alike. My lips have wisdom to utter, my heart whispers sound sense. I turn my attention to a proverb, and set my solution to the harp. Why should I be afraid in evil times, when malice dogs my steps and hems me in, of men who trust in their wealth and boast of the profusion of their riches?"
Words of Knowledge - The Lord is going to find someone a job. The Lord is going to heal someone's teeth. And also, there is someone who is having trouble paying their dental bill and the Lord will work that out. The Lord is freeing us to have the boldness to grow in our gifts.
I got the same word as was read from Romans 11:36. Everything was created by the Lord Jesus Christ, through him and for him. And I got the strong impression of everything beautiful, adorable and useful came from him and he is still in charge of it. He is still using it and it all relates to him and we are in him.
Video - Reinhard Bonnke spoke on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor 12 - "Now concerning the spiritual gifts, brethern, I do not want you to be ignorant. You know you were Gentiles carried away by these dumb idols, however, as you were led. Therefore, I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed: and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. These are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit; to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit. To another faith by the same Spirit; to another gifts of healing by the same Spirit; to another working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another different kinds of tongues; to another interpretation of tongues: but one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as he wills." Gifts of the Spirit are not medals of honor. They are gifts. They are tools for the job, for different jobs. Different tools can do different jobs. When God gives me a job and I report for work, he'll give me exactly the appropriate tool. He does not give me the tool to possess it but to use it. He will always give at the right time the right gift for the right job. The power set up: John 15 - "I am the vine. You are the branches." We must abide in him. We must remain connected with him and as we remain connected with him, there will be a flow of life and power, non stop. We don't own the power. Jesus said, "All power is given unto me." We are not a reservoir. We are a faucet. We let the power pass through us. The secret is to remain connected. Reinhard Bonnke shared when he was a young evangelist in Africa, he was in Northern Transvaal in South Africa. A young man, David, 17 years of age, asked for the baptism of the Holy Spirit after being at a Reinhard Bonnke crusade. This young man went to his home village. Four weeks later, Reinhard heard that there was a revival in Northern Transvaal. The preacher was just a boy. Miracles were happening through that boy. His name was David! Reinhard was preaching in another area, when there was a knock on his door. David came to tell him all that happened.....a powerful witness of what God can do through a person!
Martha shared that there was an answer to prayer regarding her son's marriage.
